Transmission fill plug, 2000 TL - where is it??
I have a 2000 TL - tranny is starting to slip a little. 120K miles. Transmission fluid needs to be replaced - it is gray rather than red. I have a great mechanic but he wants to "recondition" the fluid rather than replace it - but posts on this site say it is better to replace than recondition.
I have the shop manuals with nice pictures of the "transmission filler bolt". The photo shows the bolt that needs to be removed to add transmission fluid, but when I open the hood of my car, I see nothing that looks remotely similar.
1) can anyone tell me roughly where in the engine compartment the transmission filler bolt is located?
2) can anyone tell me whether the "sealing washer" that is supposed to be replaced is the same as the aluminum washer used on the oil drain plug?
3) Finally, has anyone ever used Lucas Transmission fix in a TL transmission? The stuff worked fantastic in my Yukon XL, but ....
